Nitro at the brewhouse with jarspag after days on the slopes. Damn fine looking appearance, like Guinness on steroids. Difficult to pick up a substantial nose, and the flavors are a mediocre chocolate malt milkshake mix. Dry and easy finish. Pretty standard. jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 26, 2008
On nitrogen tap at the brewhouse. Picture perfect appearance if you’re into nitro... Aroma is a bit dull with hints of chocolate and roasty malts. Flavor is the same with a smooth dry finish. Really doesn’t stand out in any way...decent JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Gorgeous pitch black brew topped with a low creamy dark brown head. Nice sweet chocolatey aroma, some light toastiness and perhaps a bit of smoke. Flavour is pretty sweet and chocolatey. Light toast and lighter roast with some sweet herbal flavour behind the malts. This could use some more roast and bitterness, but its still very enjoyable. pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2004
On draft at the brewpub after a pint of the nut brown. Full flavored stout that probably should be served under nitrogen. Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2004
Opaque with very nice roasted aromas. Fairly standard stout flavours but a bit on the light side, fairly simple.

rich milk chocolate and vanilla aroma, roasted flavors as well as milk chocolate but a horribly weak body

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2003 Contrary to the description, this is specifically intended to taste like Guinness, hence it is watery. Overly nitrated with mere wisps of espresso malt this goes down like...well...water. Lacks the historical appeal of Guinness, has the wateriness; lacks the chocolate, has the wateriness. And those Irish aren't green with envy, they're ill from the dead rats in the vats of Guinness. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 29, 2003
A fairly watery stout that, like other High Mountain beers, fails to really challenge the drinker. This is probably because after a hard day of skiing at Whistler, people generally would rather re-hydrate than drink a Guinness-type brew.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Very dark brown body with dark brown head. Nutty, sort of toasty aroma with a bit of chocolate and black patent. Fairly sweet overall.
